Updates and Upgrades to Michigan Legal Help!

Updates and Upgrades to Michigan Legal Help!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

There have been a few exciting additions and improvements to the Michigan Legal Help website in the past few weeks.

The first announcement is that the people using the Divorce and Answer/Counterclaim for Divorce interviews are no longer required to use Internet Explorer! All automated online form interviews on Michigan Legal Help are now "browser independent." This change is due to a server upgrade by Law Help Interactive, the company that hosts the interviews. Because this is a very big change, there is a chance that there might be small quirks or problems in the interviews. We did a lot of testing before the upgrade, but there may still be hidden issues - if anyone finds such a quirk, please send an email to LHI at lhi@probono.net or use the "Contact Us" link on Michigan Legal Help.

Second, there are new resources on Michigan Legal Help in the areas of income taxes and public benefits. These new resources mainly consist of informational articles. We will also launch our automated online form interview for the Waiver/Suspension of Fees & Costs by the end of the week.

Finally, we wanted to share with you some of our recent statistics - since the beginning of the 2013, we have been averaging about 5,000 visits per week. Also, between the website launch in August and the end of December, 2012, over 10,000 automated online form interviews were started via Michigan Legal Help, with over 4,500 completed forms being generated. We are so happy that many people are accessing these tools!

Thank you for your continued support of Michigan Legal Help - it means a great deal to us.
